    • Brandon’s Sol 2014 project: On track, going to pick up the truck tomorrow
  • Triage Issues
    • Shelley’s Participation: Shelley has tasks but doesn’t come to work bee meetings; how do we include her in the Holacracy process?
      • Brandon will talk to Shelley tomorrow about what they need for this
    • Greenhouses @ Sol 2014: We’re going to want to get started on greenhouses at Sol2014 … how can we prepare so that we can “do something” there and not “just talk”?

Evaluation

  • Brandon … I’m struck by how similar the tactical meetings are to our work-bees
  • Eric … I suggest that we try one meeting after lost lake that is just a holocracy meeting from start to finish
  • Ben … I guess it seems like 20 minutes is a little too short for a process we are getting used to and figuring out … I’m looking forward to trying to run a whole workbee this way
  • Patrick … it was short! yes!
